    LED's killed my blinkers

    I just finished updating a bit of the lighting on the car. I installed LED turn signals and of course got the hyper flash(have not pulled the drl module yet to cut the bulb out tracer). So while driving yesterday, i would lightly use it in traffic to at least signal, and it would hyper. Half way home yesterday, i have no blinkers. Hazards dont work either. I think it blew a fuse, about to check. Will LED's do this? Is it because i had it hyper flashing still? Is there anything i can do to keep this from happening again, or do i need to cary around spare fuses galore?

    ** So I replaced the fuse and it killed it again. As soon as I tested the hazards(to avoid hyper), it popped the fuse. Is it the bulbs throwing it off?

    Yeah I'd say your bulbs are causing it.. I've had my LEDs in for months now w them hypering and no problems/blown fuses.

    Why don't you guys spend the $5 for a set of 6ohm, 50W load resistors?
    etcts-v and etcts-v like this.

    Another +1 on the resistors. Also, get rid of the DRLs if you haven't already. Those things don't need to be on all the time.

    I actually like my drls. Especially when you have clear lenses and white LEDs. I'd prefer to have those on then nothing.
